Louis CK's new film will not be released following sexual misconduct allegations

Louis CK Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Five Women

Following a whirlwind 24-hour period after five women accused him of sexual misconduct in a bombshell New York Times story, comedian Louis C.K. released a lengthy statement confirming the allegations and apologizing for his actions.

"I've brought pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother", Louis C.K. wrote.

The exposé, published on Thursday, alleges the comedian exposed himself and masturbated in front of two female comedians in 2002, masturbated while speaking to a female comedian over the phone in 2003 and asked to masturbate in front of another comedian, who declined, in 2005. The scene echoes an allegation made by anonymous comedians that gained further traction after a Roseanne Barr interview a year ago. "In addition, HBO is removing Louis C.K.'s past projects from its On Demand services". The network has received no allegations of misconduct by Louis C.K. related to any of our 5 shows produced together over the past 8 years. A source close to the late-night show said C.K.'s reps informed show producers late Wednesday afternoon that their client was no longer available to appear on the show. And run from them.

I have been remorseful of my actions.

Now speaking to the Times, Notaro said she feels "trapped" by her association with C.K., who promoted her now famous "Hello, I Have Cancer" Largo set about her cancer diagnosis in 2012. The show premiered only a month before the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, opening the floodgates in Hollywood for women, and men, to come forward with their stories of sexual harassment.

Written and directed by Louis CK, the movie also starred CK alongside Moretz, Day, John Malkovich, Pamela Adlon, Rose Byrne and Helen Hunt. He did not make clear how long he would be stepping back for.

The comedian's publicists initially said that they were not issuing a statement. The power I had over these women is that they admired me.

"At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true".

I Love You, Daddy was self-financed by CK, but The Orchard paid $5 million to release the film in theaters nationwide after its world premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

In the film Moretz plays China, the 17-year-old daughter of CK's character, who begins dating a 68-year-old filmmaker that is also an alleged pedophile.
